Julep Morgan (purple) and Julep Oscar (gold sparkle)
You guys already know that I am a fan of Julep, so when they contacted me with the opportunity to do a product review, I jumped at the chance! In case you don’t know, Julep has a monthly subscription service where they send nail polish and other beauty products. When you first join you take a quick quiz and are matched with one of the following style profiles: American Beauty, Boho Glam, Bombshell, Classic with a Twist, and It Girl. Normally I order the Classic with a Twist box, but for the purposes of my review I wanted to try something different and went with the It Girl Box.
One thing I love about Julep is the packaging- they always have cute packaging and clearly put a lot of thought into the way each box is presented. For my first It Girl box, my nail polishes were carefully wrapped in bubble wrap and tucked into the adorable tote above. The three colors I received are Claire (a pretty sky blue), Blake (a creamy pale yellow), and Morgan (a shimmery medium purple). I love all three of these colors and I love the Julep forumla. In my experience Julep colors always go on really smoothly and dry fairly quickly. Check out my swatches below to see how each color looks on my nails!
The Julep Maven subscription is only $19.99/month and I definitely feel like I get my money’s worth each time. Each box comes with at least 2 nail polishes (which retail for $14 each) and a little something extra (generally about $40 worth of product). If you don’t want to get a box one month, it’s really easy to skip the month, or if you want to try out a different style one month, it’s easy to do that too! Each month they come out with great new colors and I was particularly in love with the designer collaboration Julep did with Trina Turk for fashion week last month.
Now here’s the fun part for all of you guys! Julep has generously allowed me to give away an introductory box of your choice to one of my readers (U.S. and Canada only). This giveaway will be open until 12:01 am on October 15th and the winner will be selected randomly and announced that Monday- just use the Rafflecopter form below to enter!
